Hi I'm Alison

I grew up in the mid-western US, but now live in sunny southern California. I am a wife and a busy mother of three.

About Me

I am a wife. I am a mother of three. I am a daughter, a sister, an aunt & a friend. I love interior design. I love to read. I love to sing, even if my children wish I wouldn't & one day I will take piano lessons again, because my mother was right, I should have practiced more.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a member of the church, but that is not why I am a Mormon. I am a Mormon because I have received a personal witness that the things I was taught growing up are true. I know absolutely that there is a reason why I am here in mortality. There is a plan. I know that my Savior atoned for my sins personally and that because of that I can live with my Heavenly Father again if I live worthily. I know that the purpose of this life is to be happy as we prepare to meet God. I know that as I experience the highs and lows and the struggles and joys of this life that I am never alone. I know that keeping the commandments and having the Holy Ghost as a constant companion improve the quality of my life. This sure, personal knowledge is why I am a Mormon...a happy, fun loving, grateful Mormon.

How I live my faith

My fabulous husband is not Mormon, but he is very supportive. He admires the dedication he sees as I fulfill my church responsibilities. I take our three children to church alone, but I am never lonely. I know how important it is for them to learn and develop a knowledge of their Savior. I shoulder the responsibility of teaching them to pray and to read their scriptures so that they might know for themselves that which I know to be true. I currently teach Sunday School on a weekly basis to 16 & 17 year old boys & girls.
